. that is the problem. >> laura: you can respond to stephen. true that john boehner didn't help with the plan bfiasco. stephen is right, isn't he not about harry reid, the idea that he is leading is farcicle. >> they did pass legislation to ensure that taxes wouldn't go up on anybody making $250,000. the senate actually passed legislation. >> laura: there were no spending cuts in that, though. >> the budget control act had $1.5 trillion in spending cuts already approved. so say that the senate hasn't approved spending cuts in the last congress is not true. the problem is this and i feel bad for john boehner if you were obama you don't know who to negotiate with. even with john boehner were to come to obama with a deal, john boehner is being held host and by members of his own caucus who won't let him do that. boehner can work with democrats to get it passnd and throw some of his support with the democrats to get it passed but the problem for john boehner is he has an election coming up for his own leadership position on january 3 and he is afraid to do that. >> laura: again, and i understand why juli

in 2012 voted aye. speaker boehner also voted i. mike emmanuel mentioned the chairman of the did he have it and debt commission to deal with this did he have it and debt came out with a detailed statement. i'd like to read it here. quote, the deal is a missed opportunity to do something big to reduce our long term fiscal problems but it small step forward in our efforts to reduce the federal deficit following on the one trillion dollar did he have it? spending. both steps advance efforts to put our fiscal house in order neither done, nor -- one nor combination of the two come close to solving problems and loaders must have the courage to reform our tax code and entitlement program such that we put it on a downward path as a percent of the economy. washington missed this magic moment to do something big, recuse the deficit, reform our tax code and fiscal entitlement programs we've known over a year this fiscal cliff is coming. washington politicians set it up. forcing them selfs to deal with our nation's lng term fiscal problems. after taking the country to the brink of economic disaster,

on new year's eve still addicted to spending money. >> last friday speaker boehner told his senate colleagues to see if they could find a by by bipartisan deal with time running out. house lawmakers were left working on unrelated issues and feeling like this process is broken. >> the american people are looking at congress with disdain and rightfully so. with the deadline on the fiscal cliff only hours away, we have failed to reach a reasonable compromise to move the economy forward and ward off painful tax hikes on the middle class. >> senate republicans are hopeful there will be a vote tonight. first, they would like an official score from the congressional budget office. so plenty of activity ahead here on the hill tonight. and if there is a vote and if it were to pass, then the house would pick it up tomorrow, bret. >> bret: just to be clear, mike. tonight, there is still a possibility, in the senate, because of the way it works, that you would have to get 60 votes to get the thing to the floor, it's not really clear that they have all those votes yet. >> that's right. we have

-calling. harry reid called boehner a dictator. i find it strange because they don't call actual dick tears dictators. they never call chavez or castro a dictator but they will call boehner a dictator. are they going to start acting like adults soon. >> the house has done their job. it's ironic to me that harry reid goes after john boehner. the house of representatives did this months ago which is when it should have been done. extended the rates. replaced the across the board cuts with responsible reductions in spending. and, yet, here the senate is pointing the finger at the house of representatives. the speaker is right to say it's up to the senate. and this is where it's going to have to happen. >> all right, senator. thanks at lot. next on the run down do both parties actually want to go over the fiscal cliff to save political face? we'll debate it the state department officials out of their jobs after the benghazi terrorist attack are reportedly still on the payroll. we have details moments away. >> greg: continuing with top story tonight. with days to go. both parties want it to go o

frustration about it. that's why speaker boehner has had such a hard time today, he basically let a lot of the conservatives in his caucuses vent for several hours. it may have been a short strategy in the short-term because it allows conservatives to express their anger behind closed doors and come out oto the cameras and say they really don't like this deal but at the end of the day it's probably the best thing they can do right now to avoid the possibility of the nation slipping into another recession number one and number two, it locks in tax cuts not for everybody but for a big, big share of this country and so now both parties can claim that they are extending tax cuts for a lot of people that's a better outcome for either party than the republicans looking tonight like they're blocking this deal and then going home and having to answer for the fact that we're not only maybe crashing the markets, slipping into recession but, also, stopping tax cuts for a lot of people. it's not going to be a perfect deal but it's one that in the end it appears and we will see what the vote is. it

that speaker boehner own party we can go back as you said to the debt ceiling debate. the only reason we have cliffs and crises because democrats, particularly in the senate have completely abandoned the legally mandated budgeting process. we have not had a budget in this country for three years. that's why we keep having all these high stakes crises where we are really worried about some deadline that's looming. if we just passed budgets the way we were supposed to and the way the flaw necessitates we wouldn't be having any of these problems, but we have had them year after year. the american people are so weary of this, laura. >> i love the fact, that the "new york times" once again it's like that time of year. look at my watch the "new york times" is going to attack the tea party which they did today. the tea party has a little narrowing influence they are really on the ropes. that kind of thing as if the tea party is in charge of the white house and the senate. i mean you could say the tea party pick bad candidates this time around the idea that the president and harry reid in the senate
